We loved everything about this hotel - it 's one that I've had my eye on for some time and I was not disappointed. Full of grandeur and elegance situated in beautifully kept grounds. The staff were very attentive without exception (special mention to Giuseppe, the barman and apologies if the spelling is incorrect). The fridge in our room was not working when we arrived so we reported it and the maintenance man was there within a matter of minutes and got it replaced. Our room was large and airy, double aspect, with a side sea view and a big bathroom with double sink and very comfy beds. The dining room was absolutely lovely and the food very good.
The location was ideal and we walked up and down the prom a few times. We also walked through the pine woods behind the hotel, very peaceful and loved the duck/goose/swan and terrapin/pool/pond. We went to Pisa by train (thankfully we didn't experience any hassle like a previous reviewer) and thought that the tower was very impressive and an unmissable experience. We also went to Portofino but unfortunately due to choppy waters, our visit was cut short so we only spent just over an hour there and wouldn't have bothered going if we had known as it was two hours there and two hours back.
We also did a trip to Siena (do not miss the Duomo) via San Gimignano which was the most charming place.
Loved, loved, loved this hotel and would be more than happy to go back.
